    If you update with CBHC installed, you will have to reinstall CBHC. You don't have to remove CBHC before the update. Haxchi is unaffected by the update.

    Gonna guess they added some UI to handle when the e-store shuts down.

    If you crunch the numbers, odds are the eShop is going to stay open for quite awhile. Online play alone probably has another year on the Wii U.

    (off topic)

    The PS3 gets updated mainly to change the bluray movie encryption keys - being one of the very few players where they're periodically changed (well, it's also one of the few players to get hacked :P), they definitely took their time to patch the 4.82 browser exploit and haven't solved the still open "hybrid firmware" yet :)

    It seems a little bit weird that EUR region will end on 5.5.4 E
    and rest of the world on 5.5.3 U/J

    I am asking because back then people said that if you were on 5.5.1 and you updated to 5.5.2 with either regular haxchi or cbhc installed, you would brick

    I have 2 Wii U, one of them to my surprise autoupdated this morning and I had to reinstall CBHC. (First uninstalled (not needed?), then installed again).

    The other is protected against updates, I'll hold on updating that for a few days.
    (The one that autoupdated is defective, it has a broken drive - so I paid about €20 and I use it for experimenting a bit)

    So, this seems to be a harmless update, but I guess some people having bought a hacked Wii U lately on ebay or whatever, will find their console "not working properly" after the autoupdate, maybe reformat the console, and brick.

    I updated to 5.5.4E and until now so far, so good.
    No problems.... Everything is working fine.

    I haven't seen this update yet. I live in Sweden. Even my stock console can't see the update. I've never blocked updates on my consoles, and I'm not using VPN. But it would seem as this update doesn't affect all, or it simply hasn't hit Sweden yet.

    Have you checked download manager?
    Do you have blocked the updates by DNS ?

    Try to go to Settings\System Update, and force the update manually and see if it starts updating.

    See if you can access the eshop - that's when mine prompted the update.

    Yeah, I haven't blocked anything. And E-shop works fine.

    It's no big deal to not update, I just figured I'd let everyone know that some consoles didn't recieve it (yet).

    You must have Nintendo servers blocked by DNS or your console is USA region.
    If you go to System Settings \ System Update and click on update, it does nothing??
    Are you sure you are on 5.5.3E ?

    I have 2. Both WUP-010(EUR). One running Haxchi, one stock. None of them can get the update to this date. And no blocking whatsoever.
